Ayoola is a multi-talented artist with interest in landscapes, figures and the words in between. Started painting in 2017 since 1996 after he completed studying Fine Arts at the Yaba College of Arts & Technology, Nigeria with specialty in Graphic design. He holds a MSc in Marketing Communication from Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester. When not painting, Ayoola is out having fun with family or friends playing tennis, bowling or just seeing non-exotic places
So why Visual Art? On one hand, Ayoola creates art and literature to release the tension that would otherwise have shortened his lifetime. On the other, he paints to celebrate the beauty in a world full of vile hate and negativity. He believes that livening faces through art and poetry is a life worth living.
